# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:

# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:

# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and

# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

This works for the most part, What i would really like is to have the crt-1 which is a 15" touch screen lcd connected to the second port of the 6600 have the pull down menus, and have no menus on the 19" lcd with dvi and no menus on the 15" lcd from the 4000. also is it possible to have a display from the vga connector and the composite connector at the same time?

now screen1 the 4000 has a completly different display and sreen 0 is both the 19" and the 15" togather.
thanks

Here's mine that I use for my triple display setup. You'll have to change the BUSIDs to match your cards.
